There's a story here. ✨🐶✨
Mom arrived to work at Dad's office on July 19, 2017 earlier than usual. The office opens at 8:00a.m., but she was there by 7:00, so things were already off to a different start. As soon as she got to her room, she heard a piercing sound in the side yard, and upon investigation, she discovered this little guy wailing in the grass with three dead puppies around him. The team at work had seen a pregnant dog in the area a few days prior. This had to have been her litter. The only survivor was hungry and hurting, but incredibly determined. By that point, Dad had arrived to help prepare a box for him so Mom could get him to the house to provide some nourishment. He wailed the whole time, except while he ate, because the bugs and maggots on him were so painful. There were ant bites everywhere. Her next move was to the vet, where she learned that he is about four weeks old, and very hardy for a puppy in such a condition. She received medicines and detailed instructions for how to nurse him back to health. So far, it's working. This picture was taken just a day after he was found, and the improvement is already significant. We've got a strong one on our hands, and he has our hearts. (Even Dad's!) His beginnings are tragic, but there's a lesson of determination here for all of us. Welcome to the family, Oswald Akiva Lengel.
